The Tomislav

As promised, here is a presentation about the Tomislav, an over-sized, heavily modified Thompson submachine gun with two handles, an ammo drum connected to its underside, and a carrying sling hanging from the drum to the hand-guard. The weapon sports a 40% faster spin-up time and has no spin-up sound besides a quiet jingling sound as the weapon is lowered, making it ideal for ambushing opponents. However, this comes at the cost of a 20% reduction in firing speed, lowering damage per second.

The Tomislav theoretically is the weakest of the heavy’s primary weapons owing to its reduced rate of fire. However, in practise, it is easily the most powerful, beating out the other weapons in versatility when wielded correctly. This is primarily because of the reduced spin-up time, allowing a vigilant wielder to easily get the first shot off to damage an opponent. Furthermore, the lack of a spin-up sound allows a heavy to camp around a corner and ambush unsuspecting enemies. This combination allows the Tomislav to get the first shot off, often on a short notice, without being noticed, making it a highly viable weapon for most situations, except perhaps an enemy Heavy wielding a conventional mini-gun.

The superior speed offered by the Tomislav gives it the power to decimate entire enemy positions, allowing one’s team to rapidly capture objectives or overcome a choke point; in past experience, the Tomislav is probably the best of the Heavy’s primary weapons. A skilled Heavy with a Tomislav and a sandvich is nigh-invincible, being able to turn the tides of a battle independently. Because of a Heavy’s inherent survivability, teams facing a Heavy would be advised to rush him, or else request firepower from a sniper or spy, both of which can kill even an overhealed Heavy in a single shot.
